Maggie learned to do special effects makeup when she owned Fright Night Scream Park, a haunted attraction, in Clovis. She was trained by the best artists in the industry, including Bobbie Weiner, aka Bloody Mary (who did the frozen effects on actors in the Titanic), the Wolfe Brothers (often called on to judge the annual International Face and Body Painting competition in Austria),  Mark Reid (famous for his body painting, creating the look of jeans on the models), Bella Volen, and Dutch Biharny, and others.

The kit provides all you need for a huge variety of applications. This is not product you find at local Halloween stores.
